Stone Soup & Other Heartwarming Tales

Literature and Literacy

We’ve scoured the globe for short stories to celebrate the spirit of the season! In O. Henry’s short story “The Gift of the Magi” students learn about putting others first. In a classic Indian folk tale, “The Drum,” students learn about generosity and the power of giving. Finally, with our unique retelling of “Stone Soup” students are reminded of the value that sharing brings to a community. This is the perfect complement to character-education programs and a great literacy tool to build comprehension and listening skills!
